Amidst the controversy over the human shield issue, the women’s wing of Opposition National Conference (NC) on Wednesday rallied against the awarding of an army Major who used a Kashmiri civilian as a human shield by tying him to the bonnet of his jeep during the April 9 by-poll in central Kashmir’s Budgam district, reports said.

Lead by MLA Habba Kada and senior NC leader Shameema Firdous, the women started their march at the party headquarters in Nawa-i-Subh complex and marched towards the Radio Kashmir crossing where they were intercepted by the police.

“The rally was organized against the awarding of army officer who used a Kashmiri man Farooq Ahmad  Dar as a human shield”, Shameema Firdaus told reporters.

Pertinently, Major Gogoi was on Monday awarded the Chief of Army Staff’s Commendation Card for his “sustained efforts in counter-insurgency operations.”

The decision has evoked sharp criticism from various quarters of society.
